"...every pastoral practice has to follow the Word of God if it does not want to fail. A change of the teaching, of the dogma, is unthinkable. Who nevertheless consciously does it, or insistently demands it, is a heretic – even if he wears the Roman Purple.” Cardinal Walter Brandmuller
THE HEIR APPARENT
THE CAPO di TUTT'I CAPI - THE NEW "GODFATHER" OF ECUMENISM
God, please help us all survive weak Sheppard's, pray for an increase in their Courage and Fidelity to the One True Church and to Fear thy wrath, rather than man's wrath:
"I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so often in human history." (Card. Francis George. [Source here] )
Would that many more Shepherds truly understand Cardinal George's words...
